I love visiting this restaurant whenever we are in town. Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu (my favorite are the enchiladas!), and plenty of chips & salsa. Located next to WalMart.

From the service to the food you can't go wrong here. We have been coming here for 20+years. This is where we go to celebrate Family! Birthdays, anniversaries meeting friends, and pecial occasions. Everything is good. Service is fast but never feel rushed.
